Far Frontiers Mountaineering

Far Frontiers has a proud heritage of Mountaineering. Our late Chairman, George Band OBE, was the youngest member of the successful 1953 Everest Expedition with Hilary and Tenzig and was later President of the British Mountaineering Council. We have organised successful expeditions to the summit of Everest, Makalu and a host of peaks across South America, Africa and Asia. Our Managing Director Chris Short was a past instructor and chief instructor of the British Mountain Centre in Norway and has climbed McKinley and numerous Himalayan Peaks.

We specialise in three areas:

1.) Organising logistical support for existing teams, e.g. British Services, Army, Navy or RAF Expeditions, National Police Forces, National Armies and other such groups. Here, we do all to support the expedition leader achieve their aims. It is their expedition and it is our expertise behind the scenes.

2.) We don't believe in putting together expeditions with Western leaders. We fully support Himalayan expeditions being led for example, by Nepalese guides. We support Nepalese International Mountain Guides as the way ahead in commercial expeditions and we have a fantastic team of Nepalese Mountain Guides.

3.) We are passionate about creating future Alpinists. Young people undertaking Scottish Winter Skills and climbing Alpine peaks gives them new skills and a whole new outlook to develop them as future Alpinists. Jake Meyer was on one of our school mountaineering expeditions and has gone on to be an inspirational young British Mountaineer in International circles.
